  1. Yes this study would count as one. But he can only participate if you do not tell him about what you did (in detail). Sorry I have replied sooner. I have not been on these forums in quite a while. You can tell anyone you would like about this study that you believe would be interested in participating.
  2. For the two or so of you that are interested would you be able to do it at 6:00 pm on Wednesday the 23rd (this Wednesday)?
  3. If you have any friends that would like to participate please let me know. Email me and we can get you on the schedule if you are truly interested (tmdennie1@catamount.wcu.edu).
  4. Hey guys. I am a graduate student in the Clinical Psychology program and I was wondering if anyone would be interested in participating in this study. Please email any of the graduate students listed below if you or someone you know is interested. Hello everyone, We are currently in the process of completing a psychological study involving video games and performance. The purpose of this study is to see if there is a correlation between video game performance and spatial intelligence. I would you like to invite everyone to consider participating in a psychological study devised by several graduate students from the Clinical Psychology Mater’s program at Western Carolina University. You will only be asked to devote 45 minutes to 60 minutes of your time to participate in this study. In this study, you will be asked to perform a number of tasks, including taking several subtests from the Wechsler Adult Intelligence Scale, playing some short video games, and filling out some pencil-and-paper measurements. These measures include demographic information, and other information. You may participate in this study if you are at least 18 years of age. You may not participate in this study if you are under the age of 18. Any information about your participation in this study, including your identity, is completely confidential. Only the primary researcher and faculty advisor will have access to the names of the participants and their scores. This information will not be shared with 3rd parties. If you would be interested in participating in this study please contact any of the following graduate students. David Solomon (dsolomon1@catamount.wcu.edu) Trevor Dennie (tmdennie1@catamount.wcu.edu) James McAbee (jlmcabee@catamount.wcu.edu)

    I think I might
  6. Overall all it was pretty fun. We need more teams to come next time.
  7. I finally beat it. It is well worth 1200 points. It will take quite a while to beat. Great game but VERY frustrating!
  8. What do you all think of this game? Personally I think this is a great game albeit, a little messed up.
  9. I enjoyed playing this game. I got 200 gamerscore in it in a few days but overall it was fun. By the ending it looks like they will bring out some DLC soon. 100% complete !
  10. Is anyone on campus going to be getting this game when it comes out? Also on a side note there is a new lan center located in Asheville. http://www.gamexcape.com/ Just trying to revive Halo a bit since I will be coming back to Western for Graduate School.
  11. I know the pc side has done it for a while but you can't run pc and console the same way. A fair amount of people who come to the lans to play console just show up out of the blue or come to play with friends. The vast majority of the pc individuals probably own the games they are going to be playing and I may be mistaken but instead of a team winning in the pc games you base who goes on by how they did individually. In halo it takes a number of shots to kill someone so someone could possibly leave a game with 0 kills and 20 assists and not move on. But as I assume how it will be run as you get one group of two place them with another and then play. Halo is a team game and splitting everyone up is kind of odd and does not make much since seeing as no one has really given a reason why apart from it will help the new people... If someone gives a sound reason then this might work but as of now its just an odd idea of which I have never heard of being done with a console game such as halo.
  12. Personally I like that you are looking outside of the box for new ideas but why change something that has almost always worked. I know some change may make things better but from a lot of experience at lans this idea of randomizing or semi-randomizing will not be very fun. Some groups of two will have great partners that know how to play and do well and others that don't won an xbox and are just playing to pass the time. How is that fair? Also as mentioned by others, what happens when someone or all of the other half of your team doesn't show up or other various problems. When you play with friends you can be assured that many of these problems will not happen. Also as you can see most if not all of the players that are opposing this actually play in the halo tournaments and have for many years. Also as previously stated I will not come to the lan and I know of a few others that will also nnot come to the lan if halo and such are set up this way. But again I do enjoy that you are looking for better ways to make this fun for all but personally I do not think this is the right way. I speak only for the Halo side but from what I have played of COD the random or even half random teams would be more painful then fun.
  13. Yes as previously stated, why change what works? Also the idea of random teams is horrible. I don't know of very many people who would come to the tournament if they knew it was going to be random teams. At least for me I know for a fact that I will not come to the lan if the teams are going to be random. As for the other settings such as mlg or not I don't care. But 4v4 random teams?.....no. - Signed, Bever
